In partnership with J.K. Rowling’s Harry Potter and the Cursed Child 

Is anyone else still waiting for their owl from Hogwarts? Yeah, us too. Ever since we followed Harry Potter from his cupboard under the stairs at 4 Privet Drive, Little Whinging to the glorious grounds of Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizadry, life has never been the same.

We’d love nothing more than to fly on a Nimbus 2000 or Firebolt, visit Hogsmeade for a stomach-warming butterbeer or catch up with Hagrid in his wooden hut. So it made us skip, jump and whoop as loud as Gryffindor winning a Quidditch match, when we heard that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is returning to the West End on 14 October! And you can buy tickets for it now!

 

It’s back with a bang (thanks to Weasley’s Wizard Wheezes), and we want to be the first in line to grab front-row seats to this most awarded play in history. Get ready to throw yourself headfirst into the world of witches, wizards, flying brooms, time-turners and watch as sparks literally fly at Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

Obviously, we don’t want to give too much of the plot away, but Harry Potter’s adventures are back, and they’re even better than ever. The stage is set 19 years after Harry, Ron and Hermione saved the wizarding world, and they’re on an extraordinary adventure – only this time, there’s a new generation leading the charge.

The theatrical production is based on the original new story by J.K. Rowling, Jack Thorne and John Tiffany, and it brings back some of our old favourites (chocolate frog anyone?) as well as a whole host of new feuds and fights. Magic is literally brought to life on stage. Broomsticks hover and fly, wands cast spells and dark magic makes its mark.

Harry Potter and the Cursed Child is one play presented in two parts, and is the eighth story in the Harry Potter series. The critically acclaimed production received its world premiere in 2016 at the Palace Theatre in London, where it is still running. Since then it has won 24 major theatre awards in the UK with a record-breaking nine awards at the Oliviers including Best New Play. The production has also won 25 major US awards with six Tony Awards including Best Play. So, yeah, it’s pretty darn amazing.

We may not be getting an owl anytime soon, but this is even better. Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry here we come!
